    I'm the crap present giver apparently. I only had a small amount of money and I had no idea what to get dp. I bought him what I thought was a cool retro esky and a black polo shirt to wear when he plays golf with his brothers and bro in law as a bonding thing they're all doing before a wedding.
    Now o know he doesn't wear polos but I thought he would appreciate an appropriate shirt to wear and it is black, so not bad.
    I didn't get a thank you and I said I knew it isn't his fave present ever but thought he would still like it and that he's really hard to buy for. His reply was that he liked the game card I got him last year.
    Nice :-/

    I got a popcorn maker from DH. I don't even like popcorn much!!! Good for the kids I suppose but usually I just make it on the stove so waste of money really. Another appliance to be shoved in the cupboard

    They are great because now kids can make their own and no bugging you

    Ooo I also got some gold flower hair clips (I don't wear gold or hair clips) as well as some elastic bead bangle things (like 12 year olds wear) from my inlaws...

    I appreciate that my mil thinks of me and takes the time to get me a gift, but every single year she gives me cheap body lotions and soaps. I don't use that kind of stuff at all, so it all ends up given away or re gifted.
    The worst one though was probably the bright pink pig shaped money box my mum bought me a few years ago, when I was 21.

    Your DH should just have got you a bag of microwave popcorn...

    We are struggling financially and made sure the kids (my daughter and niece) both had decent gifts for Christmas. It was difficult.
    Anyway... SIL is rich, and DD got small gifts- bubble set, colouring in book, hair clips/necklace set etc. Would be nice if she hit the limit we agreed on, made it equal.

    I started reading this thread and had a bit of a giggle, but then after thread 50 or so and all the whinging about cheap presents I thought "I wonder how the kids who are poor and homeless feel about not getting presents at all" Christmas isn't really about the materialistic presents and stuff but being thankful about what we have and the family we still have. My mum was always late at giving me my Xmas present and sometimes it annoyed me, she died a few months ago.....I should have appreciated the fact that she got me anything at all as I'll never get anything from her again. Merry Christmas to all.
